  • [RUMOR] 'iPhone 7' to replace headphone jack with second speaker


    Apple's next-generation reportedly called 'iPhone 7' expects to abandon a 3.5mm headphone jack and will most likely be replaced by the part of a second speaker, says report.

    Apple will use a second amp built to power the speaker by Supplier Cirrus Logic, said analysts Christopher Hemmelgarn and Blayne Curtis. The 3.5mm headphone jack on the iPhone 6S is locate is located right along the edge as its single speaker, which will make it a natural location to expand into stereo.

    Apple may now be now acknowledging that not everyone listens to their phone using headphones and users listen to their phones through the speaker. Not only will this improve speaker quality for music but it will also improve Call Loudspeaker, Facetime audio, watching movies and other necessities of the speaker. The change of having dual speakers in the 'iPhone 7' would make it easier once the iPhone is in landscape mode.

    Curtis and Hemmelgarn argued that the next iPhone will not employ dynamic noise cancellation, but instead use a basic digital codec. Built-in noise cancellation might instead have to wait for an "iPhone 7s" in 2017.

    The analysts added that the "iPhone 7" should, however, ship with its own Lightning-equipped headphones. In January a rumor indicated that Apple might also offer truly wireless Bluetooth headphones as an optional accessory, ditching not just a 3.5mm cable, but even a connecting wire between earpieces.

      Just because someone has an opinion doesn't make them a troll.

      So if I have to use my existing buds via the Lightning port, how the hell am I supposed to listen to anything while it's charging? If this actually comes to fruition, I may just end up upgrading to the 6s+ and calling it a night.

      Well rumor has it they will include wireless charging so people can still charge and listen to music at the same time.

      @blkcadi Granted it may be cool, I'm just not sure what gain there would be from it, as it seems they are far to close together to get able to get any meaningful stereo separation.

      Good point, but for that matter what phone is actually big enough to employ true stereo separation? In order to have true stereo separation I think the distance is measured in feet at the minimum so unless we plan on walking around with skateboards in our hands real separation is still a no go as it has always been... It's more likely the upgrade would just be a nod to users who complain about apple's often sub par volume when compared to some of the other competing phones on the market..
      I'm more concerned by the fact that yet another piece(s) of equipment/app(s) are being rendered into obsolescence by the current iteration of our beloved iPhone or its iOS."Apple didn't make anything but they make everything better"
      They are in some ways like Walmart, they didn't make the grocery store but they just made it better. There are a lot of people who will complain about Apple or Walmart in one way or another because of their seemingly bullish approach to their respective arenas, and I'm no exception,however there is no denying their marketing formulas l, their timing nor their reaching affect in the marketplace... I've been rocking with them since 2007/2008 and every time I thought that I might want to try something else I never could truly find a real enough reason to move on. When you draw people to your stores who in daily life are kind, caring and generous yet your business practices are the opposite, or in that same vein you draw in and/or retain your customer base despite fierce competition and your unwillingness to innovate or allow the competition to set your pace, to me that is a REAL recipe for success.(apparently)

      I veered off topic a just a bit and even managed to ramble, but the short of it is this:

      Don't ever expect Apple to do anything other than what Apple wants to do exactly when Apple wants to do it, and absolutely expect people to complain all the way to the camping line and Genius Bars or mailbox to pick up their new iPhone XX in year 2026 just as they likely have been doing every single time since iPhone 1!

      Also case in point:

      FB messenger coupled with actively listening mics & cameras..... Remember the uproar over the "Big Brotheresque" processes of those shenanigans and the literally simultaneous implementation of non descript breakdowns of updates and change logs for the vague at best, we're always working to "improve" the service for our users BS.....

      Enter 2016 user stats FB messenger STILL number 1 utilized messaging Svc.

      When the quest for convenience outweighs the desire for legitimate privacy or concern for values (moral) it really doesn't matter how they are doing it (providing a product/service) as long as they get it done in a way that satisfies our long since diluted/polluted sensibilities......

      In the words of Evening Chamber Court jester Charlie Sheen,

      DUH........ WINNING....

      Whoever says no one uses the earbuds doesn't use public transportation. Almost everyone on a bus has white earbuds on.

      Hehehehe exactly (force touch anyone). People are so afraid of changes and progress sometime. The 3.5mm jack is old, time to go. We are in 2016. They will sell some ugly adaptors for the time being, until all android phones copy it and people stop bitc...g
